I have a Gateway desktop that worked fine last night; shut down normally. This am I turn on to power up; beeps once like it should; fan is running but black screen. It's not the monitor, monitor is powered on and
fine. Please help!!!!! Need computer bad!

Computer is Gateway FX4710-UB003A
Runs Windows Vista Home Premium 64 Bit
Graphics card is HD4650 ATI Radeon Purchased in May 2010 and
installed at Best Buy.

I cleaned out everything; disconnected & re-connected graphics card; fan on graphics card is also working.

Computer powers up, beeps once, Gateway screen appears then screen goes black?

I was able to boot up in safe mode; I hit F8 during boot up and about 20 min later it would finally give me the safe mode screen.

Thank you!
